When selling a home, even tiny fixes can have a big impact. Here are 3 of the best low- (or no-) cost home improvement fixes to make your house stand above the competition.

1st. Boost Curb Appeal



Nothing boosts curb appeal like a tidy yard. Trim and edge walkways, weed gardens, and trim shrubs for maximum impact. If you have a porch, consider potted, seasonal plants to bring the look together.

2nd. Improve the First Impression



As buyers enter your home, first impressions matter. Ensuring your entryway is clean and inviting with something as simple as turning on the lights or opening all shades, this will make buyers feel welcome. Clean windows and doors for extra impact.

3rd. Address the Heart of the Home



In real estate, the kitchen is a main selling feature and can be a make or break deal for potential home buyers. If a new kitchen just isn’t in the cards, consider replacing smaller ticket items and de-cluttering.

Low- and no-cost fixes for the kitchen include:

New cabinet hardware
New faucets
Installing a new backsplash
Storing countertop appliances to create more work space
Replacing dark valances with lighter fabric or removing them altogether

Lastly, don’t plan to tackle a home project DIY style until you read, "Homeowners are willing to pay extra to "smart stage" their home!"
